Paint an Easy Feature Wall

If you’re like me, you’ve got to have a house project on the go at any one time. I’m literally itching to get started on the next as soon as I complete the last! This week I’ll be sharing ideas of small Quarantine DIY Projects you can do with paint. This one focusses on how to paint an easy feature wall.

Tools You Will Need

This is a super simple DIY project, that I dare even the most inexperienced DIY-er to do!

You need:

  • Paint roller and tray
  • Paint brush (I’d recommend a 1″ angled brush)
  • Painters tape
  • Dust sheets
  • Paint
  • Spackling, fine sandpaper (I’d recommend 180 or 220 grit) and a spatula – only if the wall needs repair before painting

It’ll probably take you 1-2 hours to complete, depending on the size of your wall and your level of experience. Afterwards you’ll have a transformed room for less than $100! Worth a try right!?

My Mini-Makeover

For my feature wall paint project, I used the spare bedroom. These rooms have been somewhat neglected since we moved in. A lick of paint and the furniture from our old house and they were good to go. We kept the Golden Oak windows and trim, but after watching countless hours of HGTV, I’ve come to realize that white is definitely the way to go with trim. So we also replaced it during this mini-makeover.

So that the wall decoration didn’t get lost on the dark wall, I chose to swap the existing decor for some white trophies which were unused from another part of the house. They definitely stand out on the dark wall.
